What was the style inspiration for your dress?
Glam! I love all things that sparkle so I knew I wanted that incorporated into my dress. I loved the bead work and even added a layer of sparkle tulle to the bottom to add a bit more gleam. I didn’t expect to fall in love with a ball gown style dress but once I put it on I knew it was meant to be.
What was the most special memory from your wedding day?
Wow! It is so hard to just choose one. We had so much fun celebrating the whole day with family and friends. From getting ready in the hotel with my girls, to the first look and ceremony, and dancing at the reception, the entire day was a dream come true! Besides my time that day with Adam, one of my favorite memories I know I will always cherish was my first dance with my dad. He chose the song and surprised me with it a few days before the wedding. We managed to pull off taking one dance lesson, and practicing the Thursday before the wedding. I was so nervous about messing up, but that night it all came together and we had so much fun. The whole experience from the lesson to the late night practicing in our living room to dancing together on the wedding night was really special.
Tell us more… is there a great proposal story? How did you choose the location? Any DIY tips? What else do you want to share about your wedding?
I wanted my wedding to be glam while still feeling clean and airy. I have always LOVED flowers since I was a little girl, so that was one thing that was at the top of my list! We used white hydrangeas and white garden roses to create the most beautiful centerpieces. When I saw them for the first time, they were even bigger and better than I had imagined. Sara helped me think of every detail, and I loved the design process the most. It was amazing to see it all come together!
What was your experience with Adore Bridal?
I was a bit indecisive when it came to choosing a wedding dress. Adore was very patient with me when I came back 3 separate times (to try on the same dress again and again!) before finally deciding to order the dress. I couldn’t keep my mind off of it, but was nervous to make such a big decision! When we added the shimmer tulle on my last appointment, I knew it was the one!
Are there any vendors that stood out to you as top notch, and why?
We had an amazing vendor team! Sara O’ Shea from So Chic Events coordinated our wedding and made the whole process so effortless. Create a Scene and I Do Events created the most gorgeous Ceremony and Reception spaces, with the most amazing florals!
What do you admire most about your husband?
What I admire most about Adam is that he is always working to be the best man he can be. He is always thinking of others and is the hardest worker I know!
Thanks Madison for sharing your heart and story. We wish you so many incredible years of rocking awesome love and are honored to have been a part of making your dream wedding come true!
